For the ftp and WWW challenged; to get the FAQ (or any of the other WWW
files mentioned), in ASCII form, send email to:
 listserv@info.cern.ch
with the body of the message reading
 www http://the.URL.you.want

A message to the same address containing only the 'word' WWW will give you
some useful help and other options, such as retrieving batches of files
and/or pictures, etc.

Also, a recent copy may be obtained by mailing a request to Mark Moir
(moir@cs.unc.edu) and asking very nicely.

Also, try Gopher:
 gopher://gopher.wcc.govt.nz/  (The Wellington City Council)

A quick check of gopherspace used to tell you all you never needed to know
about someone but it appears that Lincoln and Waikato both intend to phase
out their gopher servers.  Some universities have a database of email
addresses available.  Try:
 www.<university>.ac.nz
or
 http://www.comp.vuw.ac.nz/Technical/x500nzquery.html.
or
 http://nz.com/NZ/EducationResearch/Universities.html
which will send you to home pages (and all sorts of info including snail
mail) of universities in NZ.
